My Aunt requested a Quinceanera card for a neighbor's daughter.
Loosely defined - a Mexican celebration of a girl's 15th birthday, marking her passage from childhood to adulthood.
After researching this tradition I was inspired to by the tiaras and and elegant costumes. I used a black suede paper with a square of damask and rhinestones, but then it seemed a bit sophisticated for a 15 year old, so I tried again.
I love white on white with lots of texture and pearls, so I created this elegant and classy card. I'll let my Aunt choose...I bet she'll pick the white one. I'll let you know.
Another request for a wedding card, but I can't make just one. Everyone deserves a choice...right? As long as I'm cutting and punching the embellishments why not do several?
The above card features - flourishes, it's the new 5" X 7" embossing folder from Darice. Love it!
Swiss dots is the first embossing folder I ever bought and probably the most used. I die cut the window and backed it with velum. I've printed the couples names on the computer and I will trim and attach it to the blank space when she chooses her favorite.
Up next another deeply embossed and layered wedding card.
One of my best customers asked for a brown and pink card for a baby shower she is hosting. I immediately thought of chocolate raspberry candy. The umbrella is attached to a double piece of acetate. The card has been sitting on my work space waiting for a finishing touch. Any ideas? I'll re-post it when complete.
Another friend asked for a boy's birthday card.
After I photographed this I decided it too needed some finishing touches, I'm thinking a lighter blue cuff on the pants and maybe a frog. Stay tuned for updates.
So I've been busy...no time for challenges this week, but for some unknown reason my stats show a big increase to page views.
I was excited if the statistics showed 100 page views, but recently I'm averaging over 200...4 days in a row....I wonder what's going on.
